The wife of Bill Ackman, the hedge fund billionaire who accused Claudine Gay of being a plagiarist and led calls for her resignation as Harvard president, is now facing allegations of plagiarism herself. Neri Oxman, a prominent former professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has apologized after Business Insider identified multiple instances in which she lifted passages from other scholars’ work without proper attribution in her 2010 dissertation.


I wonder if she designs glass houses. Great fun watching the woke Left consume itself. Popcorn? Have some popcorn.

It depends on the context. Plagiarism by the dean of an Ivy league university is totally different from plagiarism by a billionaire Housewife.

They are claiming she plagiarized because they found similar wording in Wikipedia, for items such as, what exactly is the second law of thermodynamics and what is a raster image. That is, the Wikipedia wording is not a snatch of ideas; rather, it appears to pertain to definitions and footnotes. In these ways it is different from the Gay case where the ideas picked up without attribution were (it appears to me) not footnotes and definitions, but rather the key ideas Gay was putting forward as her contribution. The BI author does seem to have some history in deceptive-but-not-lying denunciations of one side of the spectrum (RFK is spreading anti-vax info! Elon Musk's Twitter Blue is helping him with that! Sound of Freedom was made by a QAnon supporter!). In the same category, she appears to say in a tweet that she talked to Ackman and he said he was too busy to look at her research. They have never spoken. And if you re-read her tweet, you can see that if you know the facts already, then you can understand it as truthful. But it was sloppily written and readily permits slanderous misinterpretation.

The Leftist Guardian is as usual only partly right. Ackman went after Gay for her antisemitism. It was others that exposed the plagiarism which Ackman then also commented on, but his main problem with Gay was her antisemitism and support of the same. But of course the Left and Guardian love to mix things to make it sound worse. Pathetic organization and members.

Apparently, Ackman's goal in exposing all the other plagiarists in academia is to exonerate his wife with the "Everyone Does It" gambit.

This is utter balderdash, the highest form of "Whattaboutism" typically resorted to by the left when caught in a scandal. There is no, and that is a definite NO evidence whatsoever that Oxman plagiarized.

An online petition is calling for a boycott of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade due to its planned inclusion of LGBTQ+ performers. The petition was started by One Million Moms, a division of the "pro-traditional values" organization American Family Association (AFA). [snip] "The non-binary and transgender extravaganza on display this Thanksgiving will be brought to you by Macy's during their annually sponsored Thanksgiving Day Parade," the petition from One Million Moms reads. "Unless they are forewarned about it, this year's holiday parade will potentially expose tens of millions of viewers at home to the liberal LGBTQ agenda."

On October 7, 2023, the terrorist organization Hamas initiated a series of brutal attacks on the state of Israel that killed more than 1,400 Israelis and left more than 5,000 people wounded. On October 8, a group of Harvard University organizations issued a joint statement on Instagram blaming Israel for this assault, holding “the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence.” [snip] As the list below demonstrates, nearly all of these organizations are associated with the Arabic world or with Islam.

On the morning of Saturday, October 7, the Palestinian group Hamas carried out a surprise attack on Israel on an unprecedented scale: firing thousands of rockets, infiltrating militants into Israeli territory, and taking an unknown number of hostages.

Terrrible tragedy struck the city of Lahaina on Maui on Aug. 8, with at least 114 dead and 1000 people still missing, including many children. Speaking on Daily Wire, pundit Michael Knowles said that arson is “the most likely culprit … apparently, in the mind of Hawaiian officials.” “For years now, people have intentionally set fires all over Maui. As Maui Mayor Michael Victorino noted just last year, fire and police suspect someone is intentionally setting them. Just a couple weeks ago, Hawaiian police responded to two fires on Maui. One started by an unattended cooking fire, the other, apparently, intentionally set."

It should not come as a surprise that the House of Mouse has been bullying conservatives inside the company. But the individual who laid the groundwork for harassing these patriots employed methods that should send a chill down your spine. Bounding into Comics dropped an explosive report Tuesday revealing that a whistleblower has come forward describing how Disney is “systemically persecuting” conservatives. Moreover, the woke company has mandated that employees keep Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) diaries which determine whether employees would receive promotions, raises, or even keep their job. Disney is essentially running their company precisely how Communist China rules over its citizens.

It’s showtime – and both lab leak enthusiasts and those who believe in natural origins (the ‘zoonati’) are nervous. No later than Sunday, and perhaps sooner, America’s director of National Intelligence must, by law, “declassify” and make public all “information relating to the origins of Covid-19”. It could be a huge moment, or a terrible anticlimax. By the time the deadline is reached, it will have been 1,265 days since news of a “mystery pneumonia” first emerged from Wuhan – and for much of that time a small group of US intelligence officials have anonymously been briefing that the virus came from a lab.

Mary Poppins has had its age rating lifted from U to PG because it contains 'discriminatory language' - but the word in question is so obscure you may have never noticed it. The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) now considers the 1964 tale of Julie Andrews' magical nanny to be not suitable for children to watch alone, despite the film enchanting generations of youngsters. The reclassification is due to the use of the word Hottentots. The dated term was historically used by Europeans to refer to the Khoekhoe, a group of nomadic herders in South Africa, but is now regarded as racially offensive.

Michelle Obama has topped Gavin Newsom, Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton in a poll of who Democrats believe could replace 81-year-old Joe Biden on the ticket if he drops out. The former first lady's name has surfaced as a potential dramatic late entry into the 2024 race with mounting questions about Biden's age and fitness for a second term. The 60-year-old has said multiple times she isn't interested in running for office and has admitted she is 'terrified' of the outcome of this year's election.But she still hasn't addressed recent theories that her name could be on the Democratic ticket if Biden were to leave the race.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) could be moving closer to endorsing former President Trump, a nod from an influential detractor that would serve as a powerful message for Trump. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Hill that top lieutenants for the two GOP behemoths — Chris LaCivita, Trump’s campaign manager; and Josh Holmes, McConnell’s longtime top political hand — have held discussions in recent weeks about possibly thawing the freeze in their relationship and paving the way for McConnell to back Trump. “We’ve reached the part of the primary where the party is coming together,” one source familiar with the discussions said.

The Supreme Court will not throw Donald Trump off the ballot through some sort of deus ex MSNBCmachina, and Trump’s polls are improving while President Crusty’s are getting worse, so we face the real possibility of Donald Trump winning the presidency. Obviously, it’s not a done deal, but it is a bigger possibility than it used to be. Well, the Democrats are facing it, and now they’re trying to figure out how to stop him from taking office if and when he wins the election. This is a really bad idea. But of course, the Democrat Party is the Party of Bad Ideas, and the Party of Nanny Fascism.
A poll out of New York indicates a seismic
shift in the Jewish vote

For almost a century, there has been one constant in American politics: Jews vote for Democrats. There are multiple reasons for this fact but, regardless of the reason, the one thing Democrats could rely on was the Jewish vote. However, the Biden administration’s increasingly open hostility to Israel may be changing that pattern. One poll out of New York shows something remarkable: More than 50% of New York’s Jews plan to vote for Donald Trump! When Eastern European Jews came to America, they were escaping tsarist oppression. For them, the opposite of tsarism was Marxism. This binary viewpoint wasn’t unique to them. In pre-WWII England

Justice Sonia Sotomayor is the oldest Democrat-appointed justice on the court. It is starting to look like Democrats are ready to give her the heave-ho to give President Biden another shot at putting a Democrat on the Supreme Court. It sounds like Democrats are none too confident that their guy Joe will win re-election in November. So, to head off another Trump nominee to the majority conservative court, Democrats hope that Sotomayor will take the hint and retire. Will it happen? Nah. It's a lifetime appointment. Why should she give that up at the age of 69? She's young compared to other Democrats in top leadership positions

We’ve now reached peak Trump Derangement Syndrome. Democrats are actually making plans to prevent Donald Trump from taking office even if he legitimately wins the election. In other words, they are plotting an insurrection to keep the man whom they claim is an insurrectionist out of the White House. Logic, common sense, the future of the country, all be damned. How do we know this is what they are scheming? Because, as President Joe Biden’s poll numbers continue to drop, his mental and physical health rapidly deteriorate, and options to replace him on the ballot shrink, Democrats are openly talking about it.

From her speech yesterday at CPAC, you would never have guessed Tulsi Gabbard ran as a Democratic candidate for president just three years ago.

There is a little craziness happening in Iowa and with University of Iowa basketball star, Caitlin Clark. She just set the NCAA all-time women’s scoring record and can make even more history this season by passing Hall of Famer Pete Maravich of LSU for the all-time NCAA scoring record set in 1970. With two games remaining in the season, Miss Clark averaging ~30 points a game and just needs 51 points to break Pistol Pete’s record that he set during his three seasons in Baton Rouge. But the leftist media’s treatment of Caitlin Clark shows just how corrupt the compromised media really is.
